I hope that title helps further searches.

So, several days ago, I had a small cut the would NOT stop bleeding. The meds I am on, I assume. Stptic pencil and all. I used that bandage in a bottle.

Today, that "bandage" came off... same deal.

So, I had an idea. A wad of asswipe and... the stove range hood. My range exhaust hood is not vented to the outdoors (yeah, I know). I put the fan on high and alternately sucked up the blood next to the wound and put the wound in the way of the air from the hood fan.

Worked a charm! I shall bandage it loosely before retiring.

A "blow dryer" would work even better. Especially if your stove exhaust hood isn't vented outside.

You sucked the blood up into the fan?

What do you think accounts for this method working?

gnu, ya need to get some Quick Relief aka QR for any kind of bleeding emergency. It REALLY works in seconds. I am on warfarin so bleed easily. The hospital gave me some samples after surgery, then I bought some in a spray bottle. They even gave me nose "lollipops" for nosebleeds (one end of which was loaded with the powder.) (I've two nosebleeds this week and can't find any of the stuff in town now, so it was back to ice cubes and packed tissue up m'nose for a couple of hours!)

Did you mean you pressed to bring the blood up to the surface, then held it up to the fan so that the blowing would dry it out? Next time, ice might be easier.*bg*

Toilet tissue to soak up ("suck") the blood; moving air from the fan to hasten clotting.

Correct, gnu?

In remote communities poking a bleeding digit into a cup of regular flour is a common remedy. Probably doesn't work on the nose. :)

I claim all the cobwebs around my house are there to stop cuts bleeding.

They were a well know remedy in medieval times and if they were 'fresh' ones also sterile. The material they are made of helps stop the blood by providing a 'clotting' factor.

I have plenty of them and they must be more or less new because I keep getting rid of them and there seems to be just as many the next day. Sigh.

If the cut is on the right, for example, you can get the bleeding to stop by making a bigger cut on the left. This will help restore the Bodily Humours (blood, bile, and so on) to their natural balance.

Let me know how this works out for you, okay?

Rap is one who employs the old method of emptying a leaking rowboat. He's never figured it quite out though. He suspects that the reason it hasn't worked for him is that he doesn't make the hole big enough.

Like Katlaughing and Open Mike, I'm on warfarin (Coumadin). When I first went in for my periodic clotting-time "stick", the nurse told me that if I got a cut I should put a fresh teabag on it. Seems the tannin in the tea promotes clotting. I haven't had occasion to test the advice.

There are clinical grades of super glue. There are even super glues to be used internally during surgury.
I used to get small cuts in the hands and fingers that started with tingling sensations and developed within 5 minutes into a cleavage in the skin that could bleed. If band-aids weren't handy I would just nail them shut.

A tea bag , immersed in cold water untill it is saturated. Ring out half the water out and apply mild pressure for about 10 minutes. People used to use 'em to stop bleeding when a tooth was pulled.

Never tried them, but these are supposed to work: Visine eye Drops,
black electrical tape, corn starch, ground coffee.

If used for piles, try gauze tea bags. If ones nose is bleeding, you do have an option to stick it up your nose to stop the bleeding....not sure if it will work?   But, pressing the cut finger into a moist teabag may be more socially acceptable and visually appealing to your spouse.
